Watch for falling rocks

Giant crushed by boulder

Sarah spotted this “Giant crushed by boulder” in Victoria’s map. With a little finessing, it became the doodle below.

While it could be seen as a manifestation of my irrational fear of being pulverized by a meteorite, this GPS doodle is actually a demonstration of just how easy doodle-spotting can be.

On my new blog page, “What do you see?”, I describe how I find ideas for new GPS doodles. And I challenge readers to share their own inspirations.

From Sarah, I received this outline of a “Giant crushed by boulder” – a great find! From her rough sketch, all it took was a little fine-tuning to create this 69-kilometre (43-mile) doodle of a dude crushed by a falling rock. Poor dude.

Note that I’ve rotated the mapped image 90º CW for ease of viewing

Crushing ride

To get from a general shape in the map to a finished doodle, all it takes is some careful planning and carefree pedalling!
